Woman Falls to the Floor Hyperventilating and Dies After Having a Legal Abortion

Recently, LifeNews.com alerted readers about the case surrounding the death of a woman from legal abortion in England, which occurred all the way back in January 2012. The abortionist and two nurses, who worked at UK abortion giant Marie Stopes International, in London, have been charged with manslaughter as a result of the death.

Now, all these years later, the case is moving forward. As reported by Daily Mail, the abortionist, Dr. Adedayo Adedejo, 62 and nurses Gemma Pullen, 32, Margaret Miller, 54, appeared at Ealing Magistrates’ Court on June 19. They were on bail and will return to court on July 3.

The woman was Aisha Chithira, who was just 32 when she died. Although she had her abortion in London, she was living in Dublin, Ireland, where abortion is almost always illegal. She was 20 weeks pregnant at the time. Thus, her death, the cause being “extensive internal bleeding,” as a result of the abortion, caused by the gross negligence of the three charged, highlights quite a bit about abortion, abortion laws, and the abortion industry.

For one, even if abortion is legal, there is no guarantee that it will be safe. This is due to how dangerous the abortion is, which is always dangerous to the child, but is also dangerous to a mother as late into her pregnancy as Chithira was.

It wasn’t just the procedure itself though which was unsafe, but rather the negligent actions of those whose care she was supposed to be under. And yet defense attorneys spoke glowingly of their clients. Such reporting from Daily Mail though certainly doesn’t reflect a professional kind of work ethic:

‘She came to the clinic in the Ealing area on January 21, 2012, and things were fairly normal until the procedure took place at 4.30pm that day.

‘It became apparent she was quite unwell as a result of the procedure. She actually suffered an internal tear and that was causing internal bleeding and blood loss.

‘All her symptoms, which included falling to the floor, hyperventilating and many other things, were not properly dealt with.’

Mr Gibbs said Ms Chithira was discharged and took a taxi to a friend’s house in Slough, where an ambulance was called for her, before she was pronounced dead at 10pm that day.

How can it be anything but a clear case of “manslaughter by gross negligence,” the charge all three are facing, when these staffers discharged the young woman even with her symptoms? Even from an objective standard, even if we ignore the sketchy history of abortionists and staff members throughout the world, such actions are wrong. Such negligence certainly does not describe a “professional,” or a “professional of good character,” or “a nurse of unblemished character,” either.

After this young woman chose to travel to another country to have an abortion, when she was so late in term, and once she arrived at the abortion center, it may have been too late to save her child’s life. But that didn’t mean she needed to die.

Not only is it a shame that this mother also had to die when he child was already killed in an abortion, but that we are just finding out about it now. With any hope, justice may be served for Aisha Chithira, even if it may not be served for her unborn child.
